The ProgSoc Logo

From ProgSoc Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search


Designed by Iain Sinclair. Announced to the ProgSoc mailing list on the 27th of September, 1995. First officially used in TFM '96. Used on many ProgSoc-branded publications, posters, mugs and other ephemera ever since.

The intended meaning of the logo is left as an exercise for the reader to formulate (although, if you look at the other logos as well, the meaning of this logo will become apparent).

A facetious suggestion for the logo.

Figured out the logo's meaning/significance yet?

While the 'eye in the pyramid' motif may very well appear on the U.S. one dollar bill, the most likely source of inspiration for the ProgSoc logo design would have been from the Illuminatus! Trilogy series of books, in particular, the first book entitled -- funnily enough -- The Eye in the Pyramid.
